Subject: Wonderfully Illustrated!
What sets this 1915 edition of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" apart from the countless re-prints of the beloved holiday story are the wonderful illustrations by Arthur Rackham. Rackham was one of the foremost book illustrations in the early 1900's which has been called the "golden age" of British book illustrations. This particular edition has about 10 or so full color plates and many line drawings, and silhouettes. If you are not acquainted with his work, or even if you are, you owe it to yourself to experience this Christmas classic with these lovely illustrations. If you like what you see, then there are numerous sources online to learn more about Aurthur Rackham or purchase some of his illustrations in many forms.
